The Friendly Themes Options Panel
Mercury comes with the Friendly Themes options panel – the most easy-to-use, intuitive and feature-packed options panel in the world. It gives you options for almost everything, from colours and font choices to limitless sidebars and the world’s first true wysiwyg editor.
Infinite Sidebars. Limitless Control.
The friendly themes options panel comes with an in-built sidebar manager allowing you to create sidebars with ease. You’re then able to fill your sidebars with unlimited widgets and place them on any post, page or portfolio item on your site. No need for plugins. No need for complicated coding. Easy to use. Maximum flexibility.
Hundreds of amazing options. But only if you want them.
Mercury comes with hundreds of options, but best of all it comes with an easy-setup section which allows you to forego all the time-wasting processes you normally go through when installing a new theme. When you install Mercury, you’re given 3 options ranging from a clean install with no default options (for if you’d rather have control over everything) right through to a complete copy of the demo including all posts, pages and portfolio items.
3 Premium Sliders Mercury includes our own incredible Friendly Slider which contains 5 different transitions as well as a custom-built portfolio slider which you can see on the home page in the bottom right. On top of that, Mercury includes a full-featured accordion and awesome ‘anything’ slider which allows you to include videos, images, text and magic unicorns. All easily included in your posts or pages using the incredible shortcode manager – absolutely no coding necessary or need to remember complicated shortcodes.
If you want to insert your own slider, feel free – Mercury wont get in your way.
A real wysiwyg editor
Mercury comes with the ingenious shortcode builder which includes the world’s first true wysiwyg editor within WordPress.
